    Hi, sorry about that. What you're having is called dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation) and it is quite common among women. You only need to use pain killers like Paracetamol, ibuprofen etc for relief of the pain. If the pain does not subside with the use of pain killers or it extends beyond the period of your menses, then see a gynaecologist for expert review. Take care.
